lyrics

I saw the stars, for the first time in the city
With the phosphorus glow and the need down below
For the safety from the darkness of the life
It was the first time and it shattered like plaster
You can't bet all your chips on the things we won't miss tonight

I saw the fire, pouring out of the sunrise
Burning everything down that was pinned to the ground
From the fear of me being set free
It was the first time and it sparkled like water
You can't bet all your chips on the way that we'll kiss tonight

I had the line, on the crime of the decade
Painstakingly planned to the ounce and the man
Stealing your heart far away
You read my body you were faster and smarter
and I lost all my chips on the feel of your lips when you smiled
